Smeared and Smudged Forum - Freaky Freebie January Challenge

Already into week one of the New Year and got a FREE fun new image to play with over that the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  This is a free forum, a wonderful creative community and lots of fun month long challenges!

My project for the Freaky Freebie January Challenge is using the Smeared Ink image PHLEM from the MONSTER HEARTS set.

I have made 3, 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" set of cards with a belly band to hold them and the envelopes.

Eyeful of Deets

PHLEM from the MONSTER HEARTS set is printed out onto copy paper 4 times. 
Each is colored in with marker, inks, and an Aqua Painter.

Basic Black card stock for base measuring 3 1/2" x 3 1/2".  Cut printed images and adhered to card front.
Used fine tip Black Sharpie to write "I love You" on lower right corner for each card.
Same Sharpie to make stitching around each printed image.
Crystal Effects on left eye and drool.

Belly Band
Extra piece of left over Black Card stock from 8 1/2" x11" piece that I cut up for the 3 cards.
Scored and adhered.
Basic Black Chevron ribbon around band.
Tore a White Tea Lace Paper Doily in half as a base.
Used an old bag from stash for the black netting.
Unraveled a small piece of Cherry Cobbler Sweater Trim Ribbon for the red bits.
Adhered netting and ribbon bits to doily base.
Fussy cut last colored heart and adhered it all to belly band with Sticky Strip.
Used Ranger Black Accents on large eye and pupil of small left eye.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
